Through a Howling Wilderness: Benedict Arnold's March to Quebec, 1775

No reviews
Before Benedict Arnold was branded a traitor, he was one of the colonies most valuable leaders. In September 1775, eleven hundred soldiers boarded ships in Massachusetts, bound for the Maine wilderness. They had volunteered for a secret mission, under Arnolds command to march and paddle nearly two hundred miles and seize British Quebec. Before they reached the Canadian border, hundreds died, a hurricane destroyed canoes and equipment, and many deserted the cause. In the midst of a howling blizzard, the remaining troops attacked Quebec and almost took Canada from the British, simultaneously weakening the British hand against Washington. With the enigmatic Benedict Arnold at its center, Tom Desjardin has written one of the great American adventure stories.
